Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Celebrate an anniversary or birthday or establish a memorial for a loved one who was affected by the power of music. This lasting tribute is accompanied by a special note honoring your loved one and is a unique and thoughtful gift that supports MIM’s mission.



Stock and Appreciated Securities

Transfer your stocks, bonds, or mutual funds to MIM.


  • You receive an immediate income tax deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of transfer.
  • You pay no capital gains tax on the transfer when the stock is sold.
  • Giving appreciated stock can be more beneficial than giving cash. The cost of your gift is often less than the deduction you gain by making it.

How It Works:

  • Contact your broker or investment account holder about a transfer or change of beneficiary designation form for mutual funds or other investment accounts.
  • Designate the Musical Instrument Museum as receiving all or a percentage of the account assets.
  • Complete the Stock Notification Gift Form and email it to philanthropy@MIM.org. If you need assistance, email philanthropy@MIM.org or call 480.478.6062. Once the form is completed, share these Stock Instructions with your bank or broker.

Retirement Plan, IRA Charitable Rollover, or Qualified Charitable Distribution

Support MIM with a distribution from your retirement savings during your lifetime, or name MIM as a beneficiary on your account.


  • Qualified charitable distributions to MIM are excluded from your taxable income.
  • Qualified charitable distributions can also help satisfy your required minimum distribution.
  • You receive Legacy Circle benefits and recognition when you name MIM as a beneficiary on your account.

How It Works:

  • Contact your plan administrator to request a distribution.
  • Contact MIM at philanthropy@MIM.org or 480.478.6062 to let us know your donation is on its way.
  • Submit the Planned Gift Notification form, if you’re naming MIM as a beneficiary.

Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund is like a charitable savings account that lets you transfer cash or other assets to a tax-exempt sponsoring organization. The sponsoring organization manages the account, and you can recommend where and when the funds are donated.


  • You get the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to MIM.
  • You receive a charitable tax deduction when you contribute to the account.
  • You can avoid the costs and complexities of managing a private foundation.

How It Works:

  • Ask your financial advisor to help you find a sponsoring organization that meets your needs and interests.
  • Transfer cash or other assets to your donor-advised fund on your timeline and recommend grants to MIM to be dispersed later.
  • Tell MIM about your recommended grant by emailing philanthropy@MIM.org or calling 480.478.6062.
